"What is wisdom? It certainly is not knowledge. Knowledge is a pretender, it is a false coin. It looks like wisdom and because it looks like wisdom it is very dangerous. One can be easily deceived by it.

"Knowledge comes from without, wisdom arises within. Knowledge is a commodity, you can purchase it in the marketplace; it is sold, it is bought. Wisdom is not a commodity, you have to risk your life to find it. It is not a bargain, it is gambling.

"Knowledge consists of all that you have known in the past. Wisdom has nothing to do with the past at all, it is of the present. It has nothing to do with the past and it has nothing to do with the future either because the future is nothing but a projection of the past – modified, decorated here and there, a little bit changed, polished, painted, but it is the same old thing, renovated."

Osho continues:
"Knowledge exists in time. Time consists of the past and the future. Wisdom knows nothing of time, wisdom only knows of eternity. Eternity consists only of now, this moment, the present. Eternity does not come, does not go, it is always here.

"Wisdom brings peace, knowledge brings anxiety. Howsoever alike they appear, they are diametrically opposite. Wisdom brings contentment, utter contentment. Knowledge brings more and more discontent, because mind exists only in the desire for more. Mind is nothing but another name for the desire of getting more and more and more. It is a constant hankering for more. If you have money, it desires more money; if you have power, it desires more power; if you have knowledge, it desires more knowledge. It is the same process. Objects differ but the process remains the same.

"Wisdom knows nothing of 'more,' it is utter contentment. And when the 'more' is there surrounding you, you are in a constant tension, a chronic tension because nothing seems to be enough. You live in despair and anguish.

"Knowledge gratifies the ego. In wisdom, ego simply disappears, it is not found at all. Knowledge knows of distinctions, knowledge depends on distinctions: this and that, here and there, now and then, good and bad, beautiful and ugly, Devil and God. Knowledge is dualistic – I and thou – that's its form. It divides reality. Knowledge is schizophrenic, wisdom unites.

"Wisdom means unio mystica. Then there is no God and no Devil, only one is. What name you want to give to that one is just an arbitrary choice. You can call it God, but remember it is not God as opposed to the Devil. The God of wisdom is not opposed to the Devil; it contains the Devil in himself. You can call it Tao, you can call it dharma, you can call it Logos, or whatever you will. But remember one thing, it contains the opposite. That is the essential thing to be remembered. When a wise man asserts the word God, the Devil is contained in it.

"Do you know the origin of the word devil? It comes from a Sanskrit root dev, the same root from where the Sanskrit word devata comes; they both come from the same root."
